In this contribution we summarize recent results on the longitudinal response function of 4He. It is intended to give an important contribution to one of the most interesting and much discussed topics in nuclear physics at present, i.e. the nuclear many-body forces. The longitudinal response is considered as a possible observable, involving many body scattering states, sensitive to the three-nucleon force (3NF). Such a sensitivity is predicted by ab initio calculations performed using the Lorentz Integral transform (LIT) method. The kinematics that are more interesting to measure are discussed.
